The Vampire Diaries 2.21 and 2.22 Discussion

Fellow The Vampire Diaries fans, apologies for being so late with this. We have much to talk about.

First, Jenna :( And even John :( Can't help but feel bad for Elena in the course of two seasons of this show, which is apparently less than one calendar year, she has lost two sets of parents and an additional parental figure. I mean, what? I hope Alaric survives.

Okay I can barely remember 2.21 so let's move onto the finale shall we?

I know a lot of people hate the triangle, but this was the first episode where it thrilled me a little. What makes this triangle particularly delicious is that Stefan and Damon are brothers with so much history and guilt and love. I love me some Stefan and Damon, so the shift in the triangle, Stefan choosing Damon and Elena forgiving Damon and telling him she likes him just the way he is and all of that was, I don't know, it's intriguing. I guess I'll always be drawn to angst. I can see why Elena is drawn to Damon. He's good looking, but also his concern for her has to feel like a kind of power. It will be interesting to see how this unfolds. It's too bad they've had Damon do so many awful things to Elena because otherwise I'd find the tension more believable.

Stefan is now high on blood and will be running around ruining lives with Klaus. Another story that's loaded with potential, especially if they play human blood addiction like they do on Being Human. (though I dumped that show awhile back)

And Jeremy sees dead people! I've always been a little annoyed with how some characters are able to make decisions with their power and face no consequences (Elena I'm looking at you) while others pay. Bonnie will definitely be paying and I'm really curious as to what their plans are.

I think everyone but Alaric and Elena now have a supernatural problem.

Thoughts? Wishes and hopes for S5?
